Homework Help: poetry

Posted by Lynn on Saturday, October 5, 2013 at 5:30pm.

I need to know what format is being used in this poem:

Canadian Angels

Angels of the House, Angels of Mercy-
yes, they've called women that.
But these are Angels of Ice,Hard-muscled, sharp, dangerous as winter's cold. How else do you explain their speed, the light streaming from their helmets, the slick of water under their burning blades that cut across the blue lines like scissors slicing though the cotton for a quilt?

Lace to these gals is lacing up. Cinnamon and allspice is slapshot, snapshot, backhand, wrist- that's the recipe they're passing on from mothers to daughters, to women like me whose brothers in our races at outdoor rinks skated backwards and beat us every time.

Break away, break away, swift angels carrying the puck, invisible wings beating, your goalie a blaze of glory in the crease. All across the North we'll roar and cheer. You'll fly us far above the boards, above the rooftop of the rink tonight, fly us into the skate-blade brightness of the winter stars.

THANK YOU :)
